39 Different Places to Eat Just a Short Walk From the Mills
A common theme of New Urbanism is walkable access to amenities and public transportation. Statistics show that if a destination is within 3,000 feet of where someone lives or works, then that person is likely willing to walk to that destination.
This got me thinking of all of the amenities (restaurants in particular) within walking distance of the Pepperell Mill Campus. My count of nearby restaurants is 39. The Amtrak station is also only 2,000 feet away. The public bus commuting to Portland is 50 feet from the North Dam Mill entrance. Leave your car, take public transportation, and walk in town!
